Hi there! Welcome to our home, come on in!
I have had repeated requests for a home tour, and now it's here!!!
After 5 steep steps up, you are in the living room, dining room, kitchen, school room and kids room, all in ONE! haha :)
Two couches flank either side of the motorhome, a leather J Lounger and a fabric sofa....
If you turn back to the front of the coach, this is what it looks like. When we stay somewhere for more then a day or two, we turn the front chairs around to make a nice conversation circle in the living room. The passenger chair has a nice foot rest that pops out.
I like adding my own details like throw pillows, plants and wall decor whenever possible....makes it feel homey!
This comisioned wood plank art work is by Elizabeth Wood of Gracefull Home! Ask her to make this when I found out we were indeed going to sell our home and move into an RV.
Check out her work on facebook, amazing pieces! https://www.facebook.com/gracefullhomeshop/
Everyone always asks me about storage space. And I tell them part of RV life is SIMPLICITY! It's very empowering to let go of excess.....
But I understand their are comfort items you want to bring along, right?
Thankfully, this RV has really nice deep cupboards for us to utilize!
Some are for vitamins and oils, others for Bibles, crafts and Adventures in Odessey CD case.
And an entire section to store our school in! Some of the newer ones don't have these deep cabinets anymore. I guess trading "pretty" for useability is a thing, but I'd rather have functioning space for sure!
I also have to remind myself, most people that buy these kind of rigs, are 2 retired folk, not a family of 6. SOMEDAY, I am asking the Lord to connect us with an RV Company that would let us help them design a family friendly Class A coach!
I am so thankful to not have to run out underneath the RV to get cots or school books like we used to in our old RV. Everything fits neatly in one space!
Above is an entire years curriculum for an 8th grader, 4th grader, a 2nd graders and a little guy who is skipping kindergarten and half of first grade, since he did it all with his sister the last 2 years. He will do the last half of 1st grade, while also doing some 2nd grade with Avery. The Lord using that mischeveous little mind that kept me hopping when he was a toddler, for good! ;)
Across from the kitchen is the booth dinette. This is where we eat as well as do school, color, work and play games.
The bin you see underneath is for bulky bags of chips. Usually everything goes IN it, but apparently the day I shot this photo, no one wanted to take the time to do so. I am just now noticing! haha :)
The little's legs are still small enough that they can fit back there fine with it under foot. I fit on one side with 2 kids, and Dale pulls up a folding chair we store in the bedroom, to the end of the table.
Well, I should stop for today!T his post is VERY full of photos!
I will pick up where we left off, in part II of the tour soon!
